I've assisted to the famous Series of Tinto's Catas on Friday's night. Once a month the restaurant organizes a special night were one region's wine are explored and experienced with it's local dishes.

The night starts with a great introduction from the sommelier, of the regions origins and wine culture, afterwards 5 different wines are tasted and 5 different dishes presented with each one. The night goes on through wine and wine, while the sommelier and Chef explain the origin of each wine and dish.

The experience is exiting and amazing. Each wine reveals new flavors and stories, while the dish empowers the taste, and the atmosphere is surrounded by it beautiful cava.

The dishes were excellent, capturing the region of the wine.

Regarding the restaurant itself, the architecture is great, a bottles ceiling receives you and the environments is quiet enough for a beautiful evening with the usual movement of a great fashion restaurant. It outside deck provides a moment of relax under the beautiful sky of Cancun.

It menu is great (steaks are excellent) and the service is wonderful.

Certainly I would recommend to assist to one of their cata series (I had the opportunity to assist to Italia's one) or have a beautiful stake night with a good wine, warm service and great place to enjoy an evening.

Restaurante Tinto, in Cancun, is not located in the busy 'zona hotelera', nor downtown, it is on the other side of the lagoon, close by to the airport. The restaurant is located in the shopping area where Sam's Club and Superama are.
Built as a stand alone building much to the same design standards as any American suburban strip center, you find this amazing Argentinian Steak house.
They have a superb selection of wines, all to marry with a wide selection of meat cuts.
Above all, the costilla 16 horas stands out. this plate, is a melt in your mouth meat, that has been slow cooked for 16 hours. It will set you back around 35 or 40 dollars, but it is enough to feed two. If you order a salad, and an appetizer, you should not order more entrees.
Service is a bit so so.. we had to attract the waiter's attention a few times, and they kept forgetting to bring we ordered to the table.
This is not acceptable in a fine dining restaurant.
Apparently this is a place of choice for businessmen, and local politicos, who dine and wine on the people of Mexico's dime, so if you are there during lunch time, you may have to wait for a while for a table. For dinner, the restaurant is far more relaxed, and you will find a table easily.

We appreciate your time in writing this review; we are so happy to hear that you liked our food; indeed Tinto is Cancun's local's favorite staekhouse and wine cellar restaurant, our menu includes a vast array of options, including seafood, pasta, pizzas and the best steaks in town, our name, Tinto is spanish for red wine and we are proud to offer over 500 different labels from 12 different countries, everything within a beautiful fine dining restaurant at a fraction of the cost of the hotel zone's restaurants. Thank you for bringing to our attention our lack of service during your visit, needless to say this is unacceptable and has immediately been corrected, we have hired yet another floor manager who is specifically in charge of offering a congruent and flawless experience. We look forward to your next visit.

Good meat and appetizers. So-so service. Prices not commensurate with what you get. But not terrible.
